I love pure apricot oil, although it is so hard to find. Olive oil is wonderful too, if you don't mind your child smelling slightly like dinner. For lotion, we love the Wedela (sp?) calendula stuff, and we had some pure calendula salve that did wonders for diaper rash.
We used the olive oil straight to the bum at every diaper change, so that the mec would come off easier. Though i admit, it was weird getting use to that smell on my newborn lol.
